Why is Pat your candidate?

I am the only candidate that understands the unique economies of Senate District 26. This district is not a single focus issue or platform. I have lived in the Wasatch Back, both Summit and Wasatch Counties for nearly 20 years. I have seen the massive growth in Summit and felt its pain points and now see the greater Heber Valley face the same challenges. 

My contribution in economic development has recognized the boom and bust economies of Uintah and Duchesne. This eastern region is at a critical junction as it struggles with growth and expansion. I am the only candidate that has brought millions of federal dollars into the state.

  • Growth, development with vision

  • Develop unique methods to support arts and culture that enrich lives
  • Invest in our future pipeline of talent through innovative education resources
